Martin Luther King is giving us the short version about servant ministry, which Bishop Bennett Sims wrote about in 1997 in his landmark book, Servanthood, Leadership for the Third Millennium. Our worthiness has nothing to do with our IQ. Being a servant leader is completely different from being the smartest, working to become the greatest, needing to control or needing the admiration of others because of your abilities. Servant leaders make room for and empower others, work to build up others, not to polish the system or the leader’s self-importance. A servant leader does not see production as the first purpose of any family system, endeavor, church, or business. Human enhancement, not human employment, is the primary aim of organizations led by servant leaders. Meaning and joy in work comes from power with, not power over. Sims describes collaboration with others as the “meat and potatoes” of human nourishment while competition is the “salt and pepper.” He believes our society has been living on “spices”.
